Canon PowerShot G9 Review

20 September 2008
  • Summary: And so, the problems found on the G7 have been largely fixed on the G9 – to a degree. It’s the same price as the G7 at £330, so no more expensive but it is a better camera. The lens is sharp and crisp but could still do with the faster apertures of the G6 from a few years back with its impressive...
  • Pros: Great build and handling, Fully featured spec, RAW mode, Good macro setting, Image quality, LCD.
  • Cons: Higher ISO noise, Purple pixel fringing, FlexiZone AF issues, Blocky styling, Auto white balance issues.

DP Review
27 August 2008
  • Conclusion: I should start by giving Canon a little credit for so quickly responding to at least some of the criticisms of the G7; the G9 may be a relatively minor upgrade but it does knock a few of the rough edges off its predecessor and - most importantly - brings RAW capture (and highly usable RAW capture at...
  • Pros: Excellent resolution and respectable edge-to-edge sharpness across the zoom range, Raw mode, Raw+JPEG option, surprisingly fast - and useful, Classic 'rangefinder' styling looks great, fit & finish superb, Marginally improved handling (better grip) and better shutter release (more distinct half-p...
  • Cons: Still missing some features 'G' users could once rely on: fast lens, vari-angle screen, Although image quality is good, you'll only get the best results shooting raw, Some shadow noise visible even at ISO 80, Noise Reduction effects start to creep in and smear detail from about ISO 125, Despite i...

  • Conclusion: Canon PowerShot G9 digital compact camera "We want RAW" we called out simultaneously when the G7 was introduced. And we did get it with the Canon PowerShot G9, including some adjustments that aren't necessarily improvements, since I certainly did not ask for more pixels.

  • Excerpt: The G9 has been hyped as the compact camera that professionals like to use. The biggest reason for this is that the G9 supports a host of professional lighting and strobing equipment that are usually found in professional DSLRs, and that it has a good amount of manual options with detailed controls...
